“Father’s Day”

I had it all planned out- well sort of.  I forgot to make Tony a card, but my intentions were to do it when he wasn’t looking and have Brody deliver it.  I was able to put off the gift giving/card delivering because I wrote this on our fridge:


I let Tony sleep in till 10 and woke him up with a full course pancake breakfast.  We made our plans for me to take Brody for all of church so he could have a day to relax; it’s his day.

Before church we were watching more 24 and he complained about his neck hurting.  On any normal day, I’d say “sorry Hun, that sucks”.  But since it’s HIS day, without a complaint or excuse, I gave him the neck rub of a lifetime.  I’m such a good wife.

On our way to church I thought of ways to make his day even brighter- he deserves it!  But while reading the program at church Tony asks, “Is it really Father’s day?” 
“YES. I’m POSITIVE.  I looked at the calendar and I sent my dad his gift this week, I’m absolutely SURE.”

“No…. it’s flag day.” 

One question… Do you know where my mind is?  I seem to have lost it.

My poor baby Connie. I thought this Sunday was Father's Day too, but then I missed so many Father's Days because of the Army Guard, so what would I know? You just keep being a good wife and give Tony all the neck rubs he wants for the rest of the week, he will appreciate it!

I did the same thing! I set out the frozen sausage to thaw to make breakfast for him and told the kids to make cards because tomorrow is Father's Day......then I asked Dale is tomorrow Father's Day and he just rolled his eyes and said, "You don't even know when it is?" It's next week. Oops.

You scared me for sure with this post! But, you can just claim that you're always ahead of the game. Too bad you have to baby him two weeks in a row now.

P.S. Tell Tony that I thought of him when I couldn't sleep the other night because the stupid Phineas and Ferb theme song was running through my head nonstop.

Lucky Tony! Now he gets two Father's days!! It's funny though. Couldn't help but laugh. Mainly because most of us have done the same thing one time or another. It'll make a good memory. Love you both.

Just for your knowledge base---Mother's day is always the 2nd Sunday in May, Father's day is always the 3rd Sunday in June. No exceptions! To be fair, I learned this fact this year after having to plan seminary activities around them! The next holiday is 4th of July! I think that qualifies as a good neck rub day! Love, Mom
